Subject: The Russian Band

From what I can gather here in the backwoods, the Russians invaded Ukraine in 2022 feb., and the invasion fizzled, because the Russian military leadership is full of silly fools. Morale among the troops was pretty low, so their solution? Send a brass band to the front to cheer up the men. I haven't heard anything about it since, but I wrote some lines.

The leader of the band woke up to find
His band was surrounded in front and behind
With tanks and troops - things were not the same
Well, well, he said; war is such a funny game

So he came on out of his funny little tent
Saying BO3 (voz) Who are you people is what he meant
Ukraini is what the soldiers were
What we want to know is who are you, sir

I am the leader of the Russian band
Sent here to Ukraini land
To cheer the troops with low morale
We will cheer you up oh yes we shall

The Kremlin peeps are well dismayed
Their attempt at conquest was not well played
Special miltary operation's all screwed up
Their tanks and trucks are all chewed up

So here you see the remedy
We'll cure this gloom with melody
Moscow's sent a big brass band
It's all going according to plan

Now, I would like to throw this out as a group exercise to 1) find more and better lyrics and 2) to find a tune for it. I'm leaning toward a tune called "The Nightingale" which I have heard performed by a bagpipe & whistle band called Zweyerley Pfeifferey.
